How many numbers do you need to win a Mega Millions prize?

The more Mega Millions numbers you match, the more prize money you win!

Remember, to play Mega Millions you'll pick 6 total numbers. First, choose five numbers from 1 to 70 (those are the white balls) and then a Mega Millions number (this is the gold ball) from 1 to 25. The more numbers you match in the Mega Millions drawing, the more prize money you'll win!

Here's a breakdown of all the ways you can match your way to victory in Mega Millions:

  • Match 5 numbers (in any order) plus the Mega Ball to hit the Mega Millions jackpot.
  • Match 5 numbers without the Mega Ball for a $1 million payday.
  • Match 4 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $10,000.
  • Match 4 numbers without the Mega Ball to win $100.
  • Match 3 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $200. 
  • March 3 number without the Mega Ball to win $10. You can also win $10 by matching 2 numbers with the Mega Balls.
  • Match 1 number plus the Mega Ball to win $4.
  • You can even win a prize by matching 1 number only—if it's that gold Mega Ball. Simply matching the Mega Ball number earns you $2. 

Want the chance to win even more? If you add the Megaplier to your ticket, all your non-jackpot winnings can be multiplied by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times depending on which Megaplier number is drawn.
